DC followers are hoping this forgotten villain seems to be the franchise’s secret mastermind
With the entire numerous reconceptions the DCEU has gone by because it started with 2013’s Man of Steel, the franchise has provided up a bunch of post-credits scenes which have gone exactly nowhere. Lex Luthor pitching his concept for a Legion of Doom to Deathstroke in Justice League 2017 springs to thoughts. Strangely sufficient, whereas Shazam! Fury of the Gods is coming to us from the identical inventive group as the primary film, it’s trying just like the sequel will equally straight-up ignore the 2019 movie’s tag sequence.
If you want a refresher, Shazam! ended with Mark Strong’s Dr. Sivana being visited by an unlikely ally in jail. Specifically, a speaking caterpillar who proposed a team-up. Comic e-book followers acknowledged this as Mr. Mind, a genius, telepathic alien worm and chief of the Monster Society of Evil. Clearly, this was setting him as much as be the primary villain of the follow-up.
Except, we all know that Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu, as a pair of Greek goddesses, are literally the antagonists of Fury of the Gods, so it looks as if director David F. Sandberg has scooped up Mr. Mind in a glass and forged him out into the yard of unfulfilled DCEU concepts. Or perhaps, simply perhaps, the extraterrestrial worm remains to be on the market, plotting…
One keen Redditor is pitching the concept Mr. Mind will in the end be revealed because the brains “behind everything” in Shazam! Fury of the Gods. “If I’m wrong,” they boldly declared, “I’ll eat my hat.”
Some followers aren’t too satisfied of this idea, although, warning the OP to get began early on their meal.
Let’s hope it’s only a baseball cap and never, say, a sombrero.
That’s the coward’s manner out.
Others, in the meantime, agreed with the fan’s idea, or no less than echoed their want for the villain to return, even when they don’t assume it’s seemingly. We’ll discover out whether or not Mr. Mind actually is the DCEU’s secret mastermind when Shazam! Fury of the Gods hits theaters on March 17, 2023.
